Today I took the library’s course on 3D printing! I hardly knew what a 3D printer was before and now I know practically everything. This is what I learned:
1. You can make 3D printed objects out of chocolate.
2. You can make 3D printed object out of pizza.
3. You can make 3D printed objects out of plastic, wax, or metal.
4. 3D printed objects can be hollow or solid or somewhere in-between.
5. Objects that you can make using a 3D printer include tiny orange mugs, tiny high-heeled shoes (bright pink!), cup holders, cases for your phone, tiny heads, miniature basketballs, the CN Tower, and pieces of Lego.
6. You can use a 3D printer to make the missing knob on your stove or you can use a 3D printer to make a robotic hand.
7. You can print anything on 3D printers at the Toronto Public Library except for weapons and sexual objects.
